Owner description: This crater created by prehistoric volcanic eruptions offers hikers a panoramic view of the desert.
Reviewed 18 May 2012

The best thing I can say is that it made a good place to stop for a break on the old Route 66. Unless you are an enthusiastic hiker (my hiking days are over I'm afraid) and/or a dedicated geologist, you can't get close to the crater itself. There is a viewing place with a covered shelter and some picnic tables and toilets. I think we spent about 15 minutes there. Much more fun was Route 66 itself, which should not be missed.
